UMD Research: Algae Could Be an Essential Biofuel Producer
According to University of Maryland Professor Patrick Kangas, algae could be a very important biofuel producer for the future. “Algae actually grows faster than any other kinds of plants,” Dr. Kangas said. “That’s why it may well be the best source as a feedstock for biofuel.” Dr. Kangas has been studying algae and its potential to help reduce water pollution and produce fuel since 1979. His work was recently highlighted on CNN in an interview about the importance of backing algae research.
